R,
Generally, website owners/webmasters will add their own site to IA just for peace of mind. You are the first person I've ever seen to take such initiative. Here are a few more links that you might enjoy.

Thanks. Since I'm stuck at home all day with a mental disability, I've decided to use my time for something contructive. And trust me, Many of the webpages I submitted will be of great historical importance in the future, and provide facinating insight into today's world. I've cut back on submitting, But I still submit archivable webpages when I find them. BTW, I have a blog, and I've submitted that to be archived, and trust me, it's pretty topical so it will be of some historic importance one day. Hell, I even make VHS tapes of home shopping programs, so people 50 years from now can see them!

I'm actually planning to become a Amateur movie maker, so I can capture footage of things which I consider inportant even if other people don't.

Note: I was told that if I find a site that isn't being archived, that I was allowed to submit it.

Wow, you're a remarkable person ;-)

Do you know Wikipedia? If you want to add something to the internet, maybe you could consider contributing something to that site. One the other hand, you're interests might be a bit too... specific for WP. (you really tape home shopping programs??)

I'm only gonna make a couple recordings of Home Shopping programs a year, just enough to provide an insight for those in the future. However, Many of my interests are more slightly more normal, such as 'Retro' Television, Video Games (I recently got a Wii), Commercial Flops (Like "The DuMont Network" and "New Coke") and the even 70's music (I have a small vinyl collection).
However, When I become interested in something, I might spend several hours a day researching. For example, a few days ago I was facinated by a band called "The Pickwick Poppers", and I read over 50 reviews of their albums.

I actually have obsessive compulsive disorder and autisim, which may explain my the strange way I act.
